Which comes first, the bike lanes or the bike riders? "If you build it, they will come" is conventional wisdom among bike advocates and planners. But what about the people rising up to take back the streets for bikes even—especially—in neighborhoods where bike infrastructure is slow to arrive? Through a series of short films, slides, and lectures, bike activists and reporters Joe Biel and Elly Blue report back to Portland on what they've learned across the world, from Elly's trip to the World Bicycle Forum in Brazil to their tours from San Diego to Houston, New Orleans to Arlington, and Maine to Miami, there are innumerable universal lessons to help Portland get its bike mojo back. Features the films The Greatest Gift (15 min), A Brazilian Tragedy in Four Parts (3 min), DRT (3 min), and Kidical Mass (4 min). Q&A After. $7 at the door. http://www.facebook.com/events/761313453928539/

As part of their annual celebration of Halloween, Hood River merchants will welcome ghouls and goblins from 5-7pm on October 31. To ensure a “Safe Halloween” time for everyone, the City of Hood River will close Oak Street between 1st and 6th streets, as well as the connecting side streets north of State Street and south of Cascade Avenue. Free parking is available from 5-7pm at the Mt. Hood Railroad parking lot. During Safe Halloween, many merchants throughout all of downtown (not just in the street-closure area) will close their businesses but remain on site at the front of their stores to greet and treat costumed young people. Parents are encouraged to accompany their children, and take care when crossing the streets, as people may need to move parked vehicles during the closure period

Welcome to the official 2014 Million Mask March event page for PDX. This march is also the first event of #OpSafeWinter for the season, and is also being held in conjunction with the global Million Mask March, the global March Against Corruption, and the Group Hug Felt Around the World. We will be meeting at Elephant Park (NW 8th & Burnside) on November 5th @ 1pm. Further details will be released as we get closer to the day of the event. However, one detail we can release is that we will once again be collecting blankets, food, warm clothes, and other supplies. After the initial rally we will be delivering these donations to Right 2 Dream Too, our first stop on the route. At the end of the march, we will be having a rally and feast for marchers and any other hungry people who find their way to us. So far Bob's Red Mill, ¿Por Qué No? Taqueria, Addy's Sandwich Bar, Organically Grown Company, and Columbia Gorge Organic Juice are sponsoring the feast. There will also be live music at the rally from Andy Harrison, Portland's king of transformational rock, and LoveBomb Go-Go Last year was a huge success, with over 300 people showing up, so let's try to at least double that this year! This march is focused on bringing activists of every color & focus together to share information and positive energy, showing the power of free & caring people, and celebrating the rising consciousness of the human race. This is a completely peaceful, non-violent event. Do not bring negative energy or intentions that would be dangerous to yourself or others around you. Not only is aggression exactly what the police & media want you to give them, but it makes people completely overlook your message. To help with keep the event peaceful, and all attendees safe, the Portland Peace Team will be with us the whole day, working as peace-keepers. Bring a mask (if you don't have one, there will be 500 Guy Fawkes masks on hand), your voice, a sign, a musical instrument, a smudge, a donation of food, warm clothes, blankets, or other survival supplies... and a friend (or 2)! Bring anything you think will add to the positive energy of the day and spread the message of freedom, love, peace, and positive change! Please feel free to bring flyers, stickers, or anything else to give to other attendees and the general public. If it's important to you, come share it with other open-minded, caring people. Want to give a speech? You can. Want to sit in the back and just take it all in? That's great too. Keep checking back for more information & updates about the event. If you've got an idea, please share it! Until then brothers & sisters, keep up the good fight. Remember that EVERY thing you do changes the world, whether it's smiling at strangers, feeding a hungry person, tagging an overpass, buying soap that isn't tested on animals, or talking to a co-worker about the importance of eating organic & non-GMO. Be the change you want to see in the world! http://www.facebook.com/events/443658732435701/

An evening of choro, samba, bossa nova and MPB. Tickets are 2 for $25 in advance or $15 at the door. Choro Da Alegria (http://www.choroalegria.com) is a Portland-based ensemble dedicated to playing wonderful melodies of various Brazilian composers. Our group draws much inspiration from the genre "Choro" which has been loosely called "Brazilian ragtime". Beyond choro we include in our repertoire classic tunes of Bossa Nova and MPB. Choro Da Alegria means "Choro of happiness". Pam Beaty (guitar, cavaquinho) is a classically-trained guitarist, who has been a long-time devotee of various styles of Brazilian music. Pam teaches guitar in the Portland area and has performed in several ensembles. Peter Fung (guitar, cavaquinho, percussion) has been happily obsessed with samba and choro for the last two decades. Peter is founder of Portland's (OR) first weekly Roda de Choro, and annual Dia do Choro PDX. Tom Pinit (bandolim/Brazilian mandolin) began playing stringed instruments before entering kindergarten. Starting with violin, progressing to electric bass, and most recently mandolin, Tom was bitten by the Brazilian music bug soon after taking up the bandolim. ----- The Nancy Curtin Trio (http://www.nancycurtin.com) plays an eclectic mix of songs featuring some of the great composers of the bossa nova and MPB era as well as samba. Nancy has been singing Brazilian music for over 14 years and has developed a following of music lovers who appreciate hearing the more obscure (and beautiful) songs from the Brazilian songbook. Ben Graves is an accomplished guitarist who excels in both jazz and classical styles. Recently he has focused on the music of Brazil, and can be heard playing regularly in jazz clubs around the Northwest. Pyata Penedo is a Brazilian percussionist and vocalist who plays in several ensembles, adding his infectious rhythms as well as beautiful singing.

Join us for the premiere screening of the new documentary, The Raising of America, hosted by the Health Equity Circle @ OHSU The Raising of America will reframe the way we look at early childhood health and development. This documentary series and multimedia initiative by the producers of UNNATURAL CAUSES: Is Inequality Making Us Sick? explores how a strong start for all children leads not only to better individual life course outcomes (learning, earning and physical and mental health), but also, to a healthier, safer, better educated, more prosperous, and more equitable America. This premiere screening is part of a nationwide launch event and public education campaign. Following the documentary will be a discussion of local issues and what we can do to make Portland and Oregon the best place for kids and young families to grow and to prosper. Health Equity Circle @ OHSU is an interdisciplinary group of students, healthcare providers, and community partners, who have come together to learn about and take action on health equity issues. We believe that community health requires more than healthcare—it means taking action to build a healthy society.

The Transformational Resilience Safe Haven Workshop is cosponsored by: Cascadia Behavioral Healthcare, City of Portland Department of Planning and Sustainability, City of Portland Bureau of Emergency Management, Clackamas County Health, Housing, and Human Services, Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon, Multnomah County Department of Mental Health and Addiction, Mulnomah County Office of Emergency Management, Multnomah County Department of Aging and Disabilities Services, Multnomah County Office of Sustainability, & The Resource Innovation Group. Workshop Description: To cope and thrive in the midst of stress and trauma, including the direct and indirect adversities generated by climate change, organizations and communities need to become psychological and emotional Safe Havens for employees and stakeholders. Yet, many organizations react to adversity by unconsciously adopting self-protective mechanisms that further stress and traumatize people. The Safe Haven Transformational Resilience workshop will help senior and mid-level executives from public, private, and non-profit organizations understand the differences between a "trauma-organized" and "resilience-enhancing" organization and assess the degree to which their organization is trauma-organized. Using the Sanctuary Model as a guide, the principles and practices of resilience-enhancing organizations will then be explained. Participants will then learn how to develop and implement systems-based change strategies and develop a customized strategy to transition their organization to a resilience-enhancing Safe-Haven. The one-day workshop is only $95.

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.

Kundalini yoga uses postures, chanting and meditation to help us connect to the divine teacher within. This practice helps move energy along the spine, stimulates the endocrine system, decreases stress and eliminates toxins. Kundalini yoga can help to clear subconscious conditioning that no longer serves us. It can be helpful for those living with mental illness and addiction. It promotes positive self-esteem and forward momentum in new directions. Kundalini Yoga (as taught by Yogi Bhajan) is accessible to all people, all genders, all sexual identities and orientations, all races, classes, ages, abilities, sizes, and all language backgrounds. All levels are welcome! This class is perfect for both beginners and experienced yogis who wish to add mantra and meditation to their practice. Suggested Donation $5-10.

Last year Third Rail made a splash at the holidays with our record-setting production of NOISES OFF, which many consider the funniest play written in the past 25 years. This year we're at it again with perhaps the funniest American play of the past 25 years: Charles Ludlam's quick change romp, THE MYSTERY OF IRMA VEP. Two actors play all the roles in this hilarious send up of Victorian melodrama, farce, 50’s horror movies, Wuthering Heights, and Hitchcock's Rebecca. With elaborate quick changes performed in mere seconds, wildly absurd characters, and an absolute distaste for anything serious, IRMA VEP should be the perfect gut-busting escape from all that holiday noise!

Peacock Lane: The Essentials December 15th – 31st from 6 pm to 11 pm Lights stay on until midnight Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve Traffic is always lighter after Christmas PPD will close Peacock Lane to vehicles as needed for safety Follow @PDXPeacockLn on Twitter for updates Optional donations of cash and canned goods accepted at Cocoa Booth Please no sales or vending on the Lane during viewing hours FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 2014 Rings in Changes to Portland’s Favorite Holiday Tradition Portland Police will manage street closures to ensure pedestrian safety and prevent neighborhood gridlock Portland, OR, October 20, 2014: The holiday season is approaching, and residents of Southeast Portland’s Peacock Lane are once again planning their legendary light displays. One of Portland’s most beloved holiday traditions, Peacock Lane residents have been decking out their homes since the 1920s. As with all great traditions, the Peacock Lane event has evolved over time. Due to record breaking crowds in recent years, the Portland Police Department has decided to take a more active role this year in managing vehicle access to the Lane and on surrounding streets. “Our goal is to maximize safety, and anytime the crowds cannot be contained to sidewalks, we will redirect vehicles in order to protect pedestrians and prevent traffic backups throughout the neighborhood,” says Portland Cadet and Reserve Coordinator, Officer John Shadron. Traffic management may include closing the street to motor vehicles, or allowing right turns only onto and from Peacock Lane during peak viewing hours. Peacock Lane residents will be sending out live updates on weather and traffic via Twitter (@PDXPeacockLn) and Facebook (facebook.com/PeacockLn). Visitors to Peacock Lane are encouraged to utilize free street parking several blocks away (do not park in Walgreens lot) or public transportation (TriMet buses 15, 75, and 20 have stops within a few blocks; http://trimet.org/go/cgi-bin/plantrip.cgi), and view the lights by foot for the best experience. Those visitors who must view the displays from their vehicles are strongly encouraged to join us at non-peak times to avoid possible street closures; we recommend before 8 pm mid-week, or any evening between December 26th and 30th. As always, residents will be serving free hot cocoa and cider from the handmade booth in the center of Peacock Lane. Any optional donations collected at the cocoa booth are used to cover the costs of the event (cocoa and cider supplies, street maintenance and cleanup). In years when donations have exceeded event costs, a donation is made to a local charity selected by Lane residents. Vendors, performers, and other organizations are asked to refrain from soliciting or fundraising during viewing hours. Peacock Lane president Becky Patterson explains, “We’ve always felt that this should be a free event for the community. We will continue to appreciate everyone’s cooperation in keeping Peacock Lane festive and community-focused, rather than a commercial endeavor.”

A reading group for science fiction/fantasy works with themes and characters that provoke discussions about the concepts of gender and sexuality.The sci-fi/fantasy genre allows us to intimately experience worlds in which the rules/laws of our own world can be cast aside and different structures, (biological, technological, psychological, sociological, etc.) can be explored. Our intention is to read books that fall into the general category of science fiction or fantasy, expanding our selections as the group sees fit. Authors such as Octavia Butler, Ursula LeGuin, and James Tiptree are examples, but there are no set limitations on who we will read. The books we choose to read may leave us feeling positive and affirmed, but they may also leave us depressed or angry, hopefully they will always be thought-provoking, stimulating and challenging.
